Awesome. I want to use that on my future house. I hate copper.

Do dual manifolds (hot and cold sides) so you never daisy chain any plumbing together, thus getting hot water to you faster.

I think the key here is to define what Sam wants.

These are proper racing extended wheel hardware: the longer studs make it easier to put spacers on and to start lug nuts for quicker tire changes at the track:


some people weren't willing to commit to that so then companies came up with these "extended" lug nuts to replicate what you see above:



then the scene kids got a hold of them and now they can be had in all sorts of trendy colors:



which goes back to the fact that if you build a clean racecar and then lower it a bit beyond race height you will have a show car too
but it doesn't work the other way round.
